Authenticity in Florence

Unpretentious and delicious meal served hot, with flavour and a smile. No pretentious high class waiters adding to the bill but a comfortable and rewarding experience.

Had a fantastic dinner with my husband. Ribollita was excellent as well as the Bici al pesto di cavolo nero. My husband had tripe that was excellent. The ambience is like a proper nice trattoria, rustic but nice and the service was impeccable. We were given detailed explanations of the dishes and suggestions. Some on the nex table had the...

3 of us recently spent a few days in Florence and we had lunch twice at this restaurant. Both times the food was excellent, perfectly cooked, with simple fresh ingredients. We particularly enjoyed the very lightly fried mixed vegetables and "fiori di zucca", the "gnudi", the tagliata (best I've ever had although the chef grumbled a bit when I asked... More

I Toscano is a family run restaurant I've been eating at for 20 years. My friend and local resident Piero introduced me to it when I was studying in Florence in 1994, and I've been eating there ever since (and twice last week). 'Semplice ma Buono' (simple but good), as the Italians put it. I Toscano reflects the fact that... More

This is a small family run restaurant situated behind the main tourist area on a busy shopping street. It seemed almost empty at 8 pm, so we hesitated but once inside we found there was a large party in a second room further back, where we sat, then later a further dozen or so people left from yet another room....

Great gluten free selections. Gluten free pasta great. Family recipes. Belongs to Italian Celiac Association and familiar with gluten free. My family who is not gluten free loved this food. And the house wine perfection!

We went to this restaurant based on the Tripadvisor reviews. We went quite early (about 7pm) so the restaurant was virtually empty. There was next to no atmosphere as a result. I had a tagliatelle pasta dish which was OK. My husband's Florentine beef was much better though. It was our last night in Florence and we wished we had... More

We tried this Restorante near our condo based on reviews. We enjoyed all the food an even ordered a 2nd plate of the Special ravioli with pear, nuts & cheese which was excellent. The Braised beef Florentine was tender in a nice rich tomato sauce. We also tried the Fabio Fried Chicken & fries & Spinach Ravioli that were good.... More
